          FAMILY EDUCATIONAL RIGHTS AND PRIVACY ACT


                I.    POLICY STATEMENT CONCERNING THE
                     CONFIDENTIALITY OF STUDENT RECORDS
Students attending, or who have attended, Virginia State University are afforded certain rights
concerning their education records under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974
(FERPA), as amended (20 U.S.C. 1232g), and regulations of the United States Department of
Education (34 C.F.R. Part 99).

It is the policy of Virginia State University not to release education records or personally
identifiable information contained therein, other than directory information, without the student’s
written consent. Such prohibition against release generally does not extend to record requests
from other school officials at the University with a legitimate educational or administrative
interest, other schools to which a student is transferring, State and Federal education authorities,
accrediting organizations, appropriate officials in cases involving health and safety,
organizations conducting studies on behalf of the University, and education record requests
pursuant to judicial orders or lawfully issued subpoenas. Questions concerning this Policy may
be referred to the Office of the University Registrar.

Directory information under this policy includes:

      student’s name
      address(es)
      telephone number(s)
      electronic e-mail address(es)
      photographs
      date and place of birth
      major field of study
      whether a student is currently enrolled
      enrollment status (full-time, half-time, etc.)
      class
      academic level
      anticipated date of graduation
      certification that the student has applied for a degree
      dates of attendance
      degree(s) earned, including date and level of distinction
      honors and awards received
      participation in officially recognized activities and sports
      weight and height of members of athletic teams

The University may disclose personally identifiable information designated as directory
information from a student’s records without a student’s prior written consent unless the student
informs University officials, including the University Registrar, that specified categories of
directory information are not to be released. Requests to withhold directory information from
campus directories and other University publications must be submitted to the Registrar’s Office
no later than 5 p.m. on Friday of the second week of classes for the fall semester.
      II.     NOTIFICATION OF RIGHTS UNDER FERPA FOR POST
                        SECONDARY INSTITUTIONS

FERPA affords students certain rights with respect to their education records. These
rights include:

The right to inspect and review the student’s education records within 45 days of the day
the University receives a request for access. Students must submit to the Office of the
University Registrar written or electronic requests with their electronic signatures that identify
the record (s) they wish to inspect. The University official will make arrangements for access
and notify the student of the time and place where the records may be inspected. If the
University official to whom the request was submitted does not maintain the records, that official
shall advise the student of the correct official to whom the request should be addressed.

The right to request the amendment of the student’s education records that the student
believes is inaccurate or misleading. Students may ask the University to amend a record that
they believe is inaccurate or misleading. They should write or send an electronic message with
their electronic signatures to the University official responsible for the record, clearly identify the
part of the record they want changed, and specify what it is inaccurate or misleading. If the
University decides not to amend the record as requested by the student, the University will notify
the student of the decision and advise the student of his or her right to a hearing regarding the
request for amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be
provided to the student when notified of the right to a hearing.

The right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information contained in the
student’s education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without
consent. One exception that permits disclosure without consent is disclosure to school officials
with legitimate educational interests. A school official is a person employed by the University in
an administrative, supervisor, academic or research, or support staff position (including law
enforcement unit personnel and health staff); a person or company with whom the University has
contracted (such as an attorney, auditor, or collection agent); a person serving on the Board of
Visitors or a student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance
committee, or assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks. A school official
has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to
fulfill his or her professional responsibility.

The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged
failures by Virginia State University to comply with the requirements of FERPA. The name
and address of the office that administers FERPA is:

                                Family Policy Compliance Office
                                 U.S. Department of Education
                                  400 Maryland Avenue, SW
                                  Washington, DC 20202-4605
           III.    PARENTAL ACCESS TO STUDENT EDUCATION
                                 RECORDS
Under FERPA, the word “student” refers to an individual who has reached the age of eighteen or
is attending an institution of post-secondary education. The word “parent” means a parent of a
student and includes a natural parent, a guardian, or an individual acting as a parent in the
absence of a parent or a guardian. At the post-secondary or collegiate level, FERPA provides
that parents have no inherent rights to inspect a student’s education records. Normally the right
to inspect education records at the University is limited solely to the student. FERPA does,
however, authorize the University to release education records and personally identifiable
information to parents as defined above, where one of the following conditions have been met:
(1) the student has given written consent to the release of records to the parents; or (2) the
parents produce sufficient documentary evidence that they (or either of them) declared the
student as a dependent on their most recent federal income tax return as authorized by the federal
income tax laws. See Section 152, Title 26 of the United States Code, for definition of
“dependent” for income tax purposes.

CONFIRMATION: I CERTIFY that the above information listing my home and local addresses, telephone numbers, major and school is correct.

                    FURTHERMORE, I understand that I am to attend only the sections (meeting times) of the classes that will be listed on my computer printout. If I fail to do so, I will receive an AF@ in
                    the course(s) for which I am registered and will not receive a grade for the section(s) I attended.

                    ALSO, if a section that I am requesting is closed and another is open that will not conflict with my other classes; I will be enrolled into the open section, not the one listed on this form.
